Chamberlain Hrdlicka Appoints New National Leader of State and Local Tax Practice
Chamberlain Hrdlicka is pleased to announce that it has named Philadelphia-based Shareholder Jennifer Karpchuk as co-chair of the firm’s State and Local Tax Controversy and Planning practice. In this capacity, Karpchuk joins Houston-based Shareholder Pete Lowy in leading the 21-attorney practice that counsels clients in all aspects of state and local tax compliance and litigation.
“We are grateful for Jennifer’s continued dedication to her clients and the results that she regularly achieves on their behalf,” said Larry Campagna, Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s managing shareholder. “We are excited for her to step into this leadership role, and we look forward to the team’s accomplishments under her baton.”
Karpchuk’s practice focuses on state and local taxation with an emphasis on the minimization of state and local tax obligations. She is a nationally sought-after speaker and writer on topics related to state and local tax. She authors quarterly columns for State Tax Notes and ALM’s The Legal Intelligencer, and co-authors the Pennsylvania Tax Handbook and the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Bar Association’s Property Tax Deskbook.
“Jennifer is a dedicated and knowledgeable legal professional in the practice of state and local tax law,” said Stewart Weintraub, who previously chaired the team for 10 years. “She has achieved solid results for her clients over the years and has made a name for herself in this field. We are pleased to have Jennifer lead this practice.” Stewart will become Chair Emeritus of Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s SALT practice.
Karpchuk earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Delaware and her law degree from Temple University Beasley School of Law.
